"Smith of Dover," wrote Bishop Milner in the Postscript to his Address to the Bishop of St. David s, "was one of those wretched priests, who, wanting the grace necessary for living up to the strictness of their obligations, have attempted to excuse their breach of them, by abusing the Church which imposes them upon them. His pungem-bryo was stifled in the birth, and he himself soon after his fall met with that awful end which has been the general fate, within our own memory, of this class of converts. Smith dropped down dead in Canterbury Cathedral about the year 1780."
